Human beings will be happier - not when they cure cancer or get to Mars or eliminate racial prejudice or flush Lake Erie but when they find ways to inhabit primitive communities again. That's my utopia.

Nader urges Democrats to vote for Kucinich
From CNN Interview:
WOODRUFF: You endorsed Dennis Kucinich back in January.
WOODRUFF: And you said you were supporting him. What happened? He's still in the race.
NADER: Well, I still urge Democrats in the primary to support him. I've worked with him for 30 years. I would love him to be the Democratic nominee.
WOODRUFF: But what? I mean, but you've announced you're running.
NADER: It doesn't seem like he's a front-runner yet. That's the problem. The real Democrats in the progressive tradition of the Democratic Party are getting nowhere in the midst of the corporate Democrats.
WOODRUFF: We've already heard from John Kerry, John Edwards. They both have said they wish you weren't running. We've heard from any number of other Democrats. Howard Dean just put out a statement saying -- he said, if George Bush is re-elected, all of the health, the safety, the consumer, the environmental, the open government things that you've spent your life working for will all be undermined. And he said that the judges that the president is appointing will still be in office 50 years from now.
WOODRUFF: In other words, that's going to be on your shoulders.
NADER: Agreed. I think that a second front against Bush is going to be very, very effective.
